Ben Johnston (2022)
Parks and Gardens labourer Ben Johnston received the Megan Dalley Award for 2022.
Already a valued member of Council’s Parks and Gardens team, Ben Johnston stepped up to maintaining the street gardens in Kiama.
He tackled this new challenge with relish, working closely with the other horticulturalists, asking questions, getting advice and seeking assistance with managing some of our most high-profile gardens.
Ben also helped his team and coordinator by providing his own advice on tasks such as planting annuals.
He also stepped forward to work with our clean-up crews following storms.
Ben has made himself a popular member and crucial part of our Parks and Gardens team and is a deserving recipient of the Megan Dalley Award.
